Endophysics ultimately deduces an indefinite interface between an object and an observer. Objects, given such an interface, cannot be distinguished from the measurement process used to identify them. Evolutionary processes comprising of emergent properties and adaptability are seen in a new light. The concept of indefiniteness and/or paradox appears on the surface to be based on the epistemological framework of the Cartesian cut. However, perpetual processes consisting of generation and resolution of paradoxes are beyond the epistemological framework of measurement. They lead to the notion of progression, which one can refer to as ontological (or inherent) measurement.
